6 Shots From 6 Horror Films: 1979

4 Or More Shots From 4 Or More Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking!

This October, I’m going to be doing something a little bit different with my contribution to 4 (or more) Shots From 4 (or more) Films.  I’m going to be taking a little chronological tour of the history of horror cinema, moving from decade to decade.

Today, we take a look at a very important year: 1979.

  1. I am a huge Jean Rollin fan – his films are moody, brooding and not particularly scary, but they have a lyricism to them that is fascinating and are very female empowered as well
